The Galaxy Watch 4, Samsung’s Wear OS 3.0 launch device, has been out for over a year, so it’s time for an update. Many images of the new Samsung smartwatch, including official 3D rotation animations showing the two versions from every aspect, have been obtained by 91Mobiles’ Evan Blass.
Samsung, on the other hand, is changing its model number. A new high-end model, the Galaxy Watch 5 “Pro,” will take the place of the Watch 4 “Classic.”
This year’s major news is that Samsung is ditching the rotating bezel that had been a trademark of the high-end model. This feature is now common across all models, enabling you to scroll by running your finger around the edge of the watch display.
It seems like there is little difference between the two watches based on the images. If you’re looking for an extra layer of protection for your watch face, go no further than the “Pro” version. For whatever reason, the lower-end version has a flat front end. Both versions have a rubber band around their wrists. The Pro model features a folding clasp, whereas the lower-end variant has a buckle strap. Differentiating the two versions should be made easier with the addition of a wide range of colors and sizes.
The Galaxy Watch 5 does not seem to have a new processor, at least not yet. Exynos W920 from the Galaxy Watch 4 is expected to be recycled for the Watch 5 series since Samsung has a history of not developing a new wristwatch SoC every year (the previous 9110 was in use for three years). They both include sapphire crystal and optional LTE and GPS, per the rear.
Samsung typically hosts a huge launch event in August, so these watches are expected to be on sale around that time.
